SecurEx are the world leading manufacturer of specialist security solutions for hazardous areas and explosive atmospheres.

The Distribution Agreement includes their World's First ATEX & IECEx Certified Magnetic Door Lock – the ATEX Maglock used in conjunction with a card reader system is a door locking product to provide access control and security for workers entering zoned hazardous areas and explosive atmosphere workplaces.

Why SecurEx?

Thorne & Derrick's Business Development Manager Terry McDonald comments “partnering with SecurEx as our key supplier for hazardous area Security was an easy decision to make.”

“Their electromagnetic locking, commonly called Maglock, products are 100% unique, offering security technology equivalent or better than safe area products, but in a certified Ex format suitable for installation in explosive atmospheres. They are the only company specialising and investing in developing physical security  and detector technology specifically for hazardous areas and being fully ATEX & IECEx compliant. This makes SecurEx totally unique from any other security brand in the market place. Combine this with the fact that their systems are designed to integrate seamlessly with virtually all access control and alarm systems on the market today and you have a truly modular design concept that stands out from the crowd which has been engineered for simple installation and with end user maintenance in mind.”

“Taking innovative solutions to clients is a key part of our strategy and I am sure the partnership with SecurEx will be a long and prosperous one.”

“Our Technical Sales Team are product trained, CompEx certificated and looking forward to ultimately introducing the complete SecurEx product range to new and existing customers,” Terry adds.

“The ATEX Maglock grabbed the headlines and won plaudits from safety, health and hazardous area professionals at the recent Hazardex 2019 Awards – designed to recognise excellence in the hazardous area sector, the ATEX Maglock, was awarded Winner for the Contribution to Safety.”

“Thorne & Derrick are now contacting clients to inform them about the dangers of installed non-compliant Maglocks on site and how the launch of the SecurEx Maglock with ATEX Certification mitigates and manages that potentially explosive risk – as a solutions provider we satisfy the project requirements of our clients from a challenging concept to specification solution delivered in compliance with ATEX regulations. We often problem-solve and provide safe to use Electrical & Process Instrumentation products in flammable and explosive environments,” Terry concludes.
